One of life’s biggest cliches becomes a horrific reality when Doug’s wife and daughter are randomly hit head-on by a city bus. Alternating between harrowing, humorous and heartbreaking, the author’s account of the aftermath, based on regular email updates to friends and family, is an inspiring testimony to the healing power of love and community, a support group of friends made up in large part by members of their synagogue. This intimate and honest chronicling of the events that followed the accident, and the engagement of the community’s love and support, is a moving and profound example of how people show up for one another in times of crisis. It is also a testament to the resilience of the human spirit when faced with pain and adversity.
